senators are joining a republican-led effort to repeal a new medical tax tied to president obama's health care overhaul that they all voted for. but now they say it could have a devastating impact. it's called the medical device tax, and starting next year it will impose a 2.3% tax on all medical devices. it's supposed to bring in nearly $29 billion over the next ten years which, according to the medical industry, will in turn force them to cut more than 40,000 jobs. stu varney is the anchor of varney and company on fox business network. hi, stu. >> how you doing? alisyn: i'm doing well. it's interesting that this group of democratic senators -- two very well known ones from minnesota, senator al franken and amy klobuchar -- are now asking for a delay on this tax. they actually want it repealed. >> yep. alisyn: where were they two years ago? >> that's a very good question. maybe they hadn't read it all in detail, because that tax was in there. three weeks to go before this tax is imposed, before costs are raised on granny's hip, before jobs are lost in the medical device industry, suddenl

? hidden in a new obama health care law a fee that will be passed on to millions of americans. it is $63 a head. it kicks in 2014. the fee is help meant to cover people with preexisting conditions under the new health care law which is big part of that. the obama administration says the fee is only temporary. they believe that costs overall will lower, over time and then they will be able to phase that out in 2017, unless congress decides to extend the fee if those cost savings don't seem to materialize. if history is any guide congress almost never finds parting with new taxes very easy. several large companies will end up paying tens of millions of dollars in the fee. maybe a few hundred dollars for the small firms. most will get passed on to workers. it is a tax increase no matter how you look at it really.

president obama has a new stance on corporations. interesting. let's take a look at google. now this is fascinating tax avoidance. you can name so many companies that do this. bloomberg wrote this story about google as an example of how they do this. google avoided $2 billion in worldwide income taxes by 2011 by shifting $9.8 billion in revenues to a bermuda shell company. they do things like the double irish and the dutch sandwich, which sounds like a different kind of sandwich to me because we're going to have to eat those taxes. if we lived in a real democracy do you think people would let corporations like google shift $9.8 million in taxes away from us or $2 billion in taxes all over the world away from themselves an on to us? that wouldn't happen in a democracy. but in our form of government the people who are served, the people who are represented are the one who is are the largest donors. if you look at how much google gave president obama as an example they gave $737,055. they were his third largest donor. weird how they get to get away with all those tax avoidance sche

in the socks of all the small business people. even president obama acknowledges that two-thirds of the new jobs in our economy are created by small businesses and the vast majority of small businesses are organized as flow-through businesses or what we call flow-through business entities, such as partnerships, s-corporations, limited liability companies and sole proprietorships. in other words, these small businesses pay the individual income tax rates, because the vast majority of small businesses are flow-through business entities, the income from these businesses flow -- flows through the business directly on to the -- to the small business owners' individual tax returns. therefore, any increase in individuals' tax rates means those small businesses get hit with a tax increase. this tax increase lands on those small business owners even if they do not take one penny out of their business profits. and they put it all back in to be able to hire more people or to get more inventory or whatever that helps their business along. even if a small business reinvests all of its income to hire mor

"wall street journal" was or at least used to be a serious paper. you don't have someone doing that who is then raising money from super pacs for billionaire and spending them in ways that are off the books that are not transparent. that is a racket. he uses wall street journal and to raise money for his own -- i'm sure he gets a lovely salary from american crossroads, too. so will bill kristol go after mourdock of which he is a contributor? i don't think so. a lot of these scams are ridiculous but dick morris is relatively small potatoes. he's so vulgar and so ridiculous and he doesn't hide it very well and he's so transparent. but what about all of the others and the big stuff? so i think kristol, yes, he's right, but is anything going to happen? >> and when you're talking about the big leagues -- >> yeah. >> thank you very much for coming here to talk about this. frank rich is writer at large for a new york magazine. >>> m
